Product Description
In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to Me Write Book, Bigfoot returns from exile to share his inspiring, hilarious, and often deeply disturbing experiences as a misunderstood forest gentleman and tragic media darling. These entertaining and often grizzly stories stand not only as a testament to the greatness of the legendary man-beast, but also as a chilling cautionary tale of the downside of a life of celebrity, cannibalism, celebrity cannibalism, wanton violence, and lack of toilet training. As in Me Write Book, full-color glossy spreads depict every intimate, disgusting, and downright insane moment of Bigfoot’s life. Bigfoot: I Not Dead is an unforgettable memoir that will stay with readers long after his foul scent has dissipated. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book
I got this after reading "Me Write Book," which got me totally addicted to the life and time of Bigfoot. Both were funny, and more or less the same book (and just about exactly the same length too, isn't that kind of neat). However, I honestly thing "Me Write Book" was funnier by leaps and bounds. But that's like saying I found a bigger brick of gold.

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant conversation piece
Love this book. It's an instant classic.

My suggestion: do not hide it away on a bookshelf. Place this book on your coffee table--guests will not be able to put it down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Book
This is a hilarious book. It's a must read. Although it was a quick read, I found it very enjoyable.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot:I Not Good!
I was open to the Bigfoot concept and open to a humorous approch ...but found this book disappointing on a couple levels.....first, the book content is weak with a poor narative and a 3rd grader's attempt at humor...second, the illustrations are as weak as the book's content.

Product Description

For years, scientists and researchers have studied, speculated about, and searched for an enigmatic creature that is legendary in the annals of American folklore. Now, learn the truth about...


In this fascinating and comprehensive look at the fact, fiction, and fable of the North American "Sasquatch," award-winning author Loren Coleman takes readers on a journey into America's biggest mystery -- could an unrecognized "ape" be living in our midst? Drawing on over forty years of investigations, interviews, and fieldwork on these incredible beasts, Coleman explores the modern debates about these powerful, ape-like creatures, why they have remained a mystery for so long, and what we can learn about ourselves from these animals, our nearest cousins!

From reports of Bigfoot's existence found in ancient Native American traditions, to the controversial Patterson-Gimlin film of a Bigfoot in the wild, to today's Internet sites that record the sightings almost as soon as they occur, Coleman uncovers the past, explains the present, and considers the future of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the natural world. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good historic summaray, strange conclusions
Coleman's once again managed to repackage all the old saw horses of Bigfootery and tell it in an informal, entertaining fashion.Sadly, he still can't be bothered to crack open an anthropology text and figure out what species belong in what genera and what are valid taxonomic names in the present.

The photos are reproduced far too dark to see any useful info.

Perhaps not amazingly, the thought that any of the Bigfoot stories he's heard over the years might just be fiction never seems to enter Coleman's head.Exceptions being when a forgery is just so gob-smackingly obvious, it simply can't be ignored (ie, Ray Wallace's Bluff Creek tracks that kick started the entire phenomenon).

Over all, this is a good intro book to anyone who knows next to nothing about Bigfoot.It is heavily biased to support Coleman's personal belief that wild apes and apemen are running around in every state and every major geographic province in the US, but hey...that's Bigfootery!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Better Bigfoot Books Around!
There is no question that this is one of the better bigfoot books ever written.But it's only a Bigfoot 101 course.So be forewarned.This is not a book for a field researcher who is trying to target a geographical area to study.

I rate this book just a notch below Jeff Meldrum's book "Legend Meets Science" simply because Dr. Meldrum is a real scientist.

The reason I give this book four stars instead of five is because it's still only an introduction to the bigfoot subject, which is good if you're just getting into it.However, I have always had my reservations about Coleman because I think he's part of the problem.He's just another armchair bigfoot book author (hiding in the woods of Maine), content with the mystery persisting.He's even said on television that he's happy with the real physical evidence never being found because "in his mind" he knows it's real.

Sure...so he can keep writing and selling more books.Just like those who capitalize on conspiracy theories and paranormal subjects like UFOs.

With that said.Buy the book as a minor addition to your personal bigfoot library.But don't expect ground breaking news.For those looking for high quality bigfoot books or DVDS...first check to see if the producers and/or authors actually get out in the field and meet witnesses.This is where you'll find the gems.A great example of this is Alley's book "Raincoast Sasquatch."This is real investigative research...not "Internet" or "phone" research.

And by all means...stay away from Tom Biscardi crap.

3-0 out of 5 stars No longer innocent fun...
Let me make it very clear right up front: I do NOT believe that Bigfoot/Sasquatch exists.However, when I was a child I was fascinated by this phenomena, and read several books on the subject.

In picking up this volume, I have returned to the topic after several years of not giving it much consideration.So initially, the book served as a sound and fairly measured refresher about the history of Bigfoot sightings and the search for more clues.

All this changed, however, when I reached the chapter about that "taboo" subject of Bigfoot sexuality.I was not sure whether I should be bemused or offended--that is, until the spurious account of a Bigfoot supposedly engaging in an indecent act in the middle of a field with a cow.

As a child, reading about Bigfoot was innocent fun.Of course, living in this society, it was inevitable that I would eventually be over-exposed to all of the problems plaguing our society.But at least for a time there were things that were safe and clean.Well, not anymore.

The inclusion and content of that chapter really shows how things have changed, and I suppose someday even this will be considered tame...And it's also a little absurd (considering what little amount of documented evidence there is for this probably non-existent creature) to even be speculating on such a subject in the first place.

So I give this book a 3-star rating; 5-star for the content exclusive of that chapter, 1-start for the chapter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review from David
Although a comprehensive and well-referenced history of sightings, testimonials, evidences, and analysis is presented, I am left with more of an inclination towards disbelief and that Bigfoot advocates are simply motivated by the intrigue of the search, the mystery and fun of the puzzle-like assembly of facts and conspiratorial theories.Their brainy tendencies make them adept at explaining away the dearth of evidence.

5-0 out of 5 stars Factual and Funny
I read my first "bigfoot book" in the third grade and this one tops every one I've read since that eye opening day. Coleman not only recaps important historical events and encounters, but offers fresh perspective on the origins of the name "bigfoot", the effect the media has had in spreading the legend, and humorous stories on the sexual traits and behaviour of sasquatch. A "must read" for those interested in the subject, as obviously lots of research and fieldwork went into this book. My only minor complaint: more pictures would have been nice. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Base
I found this book to be pretty base.There is a segment where it is mentioned (someone's observation)that Bigfoot rolled around in sewage to disguise his odor.I just find a lot of concepts put out by the author as difficult to accept, if not very disgusting.This book was written with the sentiment (in my opinion) of someone sharing a beer with some drunk friends--just a loose attitude.If you like journalism supported by facts, professional writing, something to challenge your thinking, you probably will not enjoy this book. On the other hand, if you just want to read about Bigfoot theories from someone (in my opinion) who is on the fringe of society you might enjoy this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
The previous reviews of this book had a goodly number of stars, which I took to mean that it was high on the recommend list.

I feel it's necessary to add my opinion, to help other potential buyers understand what they may wish to order before
they complete the transaction. Yes, this is a field guide as opposed to a anecdotal report, though there are a few short stories the author uses to illustrate points. Perhaps Mr. Morgan really is an expert in this field of study, but I think the truly
useful suggestions he has to help advance someone's potential encounter with a 'forest giant person' could have been reduced to a
three page pamphlet instead of a 136 page book.

For me, as a student of the phenomenon of Bigfoot/Sasquatch, I look for solid, well-researched data about the subject that fits the standard set by books like 'The Walla Walla Bigfoot' by Vance Orchard or the excellent 'The Locals' by Thom Powell.

Serious students will find these two books to be more useful than Mr. Morgan's fanciful and overwrought field guide.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun gore-filled ride
A fun and quick read!I think it is the kind of books men love to read - high on gore, violence and action.As a woman, I would have liked more character development and plot twists, but I soon realised that, as no character in the book was definitely safe, maybe that would have been pointless!I found myself alternately wincing and grinning as yet another character bit the dust in another gore-filled encounter.Good fun and I look forward to the next book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Forget WWIII, the next big war will be Bigfoot Wars!
When a small town legend starts an all out war, that's where legends become reality.

At age 12, Jeff Taylor's family was brutally murdered by a beast living in the woods of his hometown of Babble Creek, North Carolina. Young Jeff Taylor left town after his family's funeral and did not return for 15 years.His return came after having learned a few things while servingtwo tours in Iraq and he is out to seek vengeance on the creature that slew his family.Unfortunately, Taylor's lust for blood sets in motion a series of events that soon has the entire town fighting for its life.

Have you ever read a book that you actually had to slow yourself down while reading it so that it doesn't end too soon?Well, that's what I found myself doing as I was reading BIGFOOT WAR by Eric S Brown.It was an action pack thrill ride of mayhem and mutilation and I truly did not want to see the story end.To be perfectly honest, if done right, I could definitely see this being made into a movie.It has all the makings of an action packed horror/gore filled romp from the forest to the city limits

I'm sure you can guess by the title and summary that these creatures are not the cute, peaceful sasquatches some folks tend to believe them to be, or at least they aren't after Jeff Taylor comes back to town to seek retribution for the death of his father and brother.No, when you kill one of their own, these Bigfoot (Bigfeet?)are damn near an unstoppable force and they have set their sights on the town of Babble Creek to seek their revenge.

Suffice it to say that I loved BIGFOOT WAR.It is on the shorter side.I would have loved to have had the story lengthened a bit, but, personally, I think it is a fantastic unique journey into the lore of the Bigfoot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just when the woods seemed safe...
Wow!These guys are mean, down right angry, and frankly looking for some skulls to smash.Just when you thought it was safe to spend a night in the woods, along comes a walking and stomping nightmare ready to tear you apart.Take everything you know about the Bigfoot legends and throw it out the window.This is not Harry and the Hendersons.This is not the bigfoot from The Six Million Dollar Man.

A relentless pace pulls you through the story, much like a great action movie.Only don't get too attached to the characters, they might not be around long.The novel is a bit short and I definitely found myself wanting more.So hopefully we'll see a sequel soon.For now, just snag a copy and devour this gem, before Bigfoot comes looking for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot Apocalypse
I heard Eric talk about writing this book months before it was released.It seemed to take forever to come out while in reality it was not that long.So much so that when it did come out, I downloaded the Kindle app for my droid phone just so I could get my copy faster.

It was worth the wait and the haste of downloading.This is not Harry and the Hendersons, unless Harry got up and ripped Lithgow to pieces in the Director's cut.That would be pretty cool.That's pretty much what this book is about.A bunch of super strong (well arguably normal strength Sasquatches) wreaking vengeance on a small town.Does the small town deserve it?I ain't telling Squatch they don't.

This book will entertain you and provides am action packed thrill-ride from page one. It makes the Legend of Bogey Creek look like some fuzzy out of focus care bears romp. Give it a try. I did.

On another art teacher recomendation i have use this for a art project,the children ages 6-9 really enjoyed the story and made some great art out of it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Do you like fairytales? Read this about a bigfoot named Ella.
Have you ever read a great book? Well, I have. It's called Bigfoot Cinderrrrrella. Tony Johnston made this book very entertaining. The illustrations were fantastic and went with the book. Who is the illustrator you ask? It's James Warhola.

The story was about a Bigfoot named Ella. She had a rude stepmother and two rude stepsisters. They made her do everything. One example of this is when she had to catch fish. They roared so much, they called her rrrrrella.

They made her stay home while they went to the fun-fest. But, luckily she was able to go to the fun-fest because of her beary godfather. It's like Cinderella because Cinderella had a fairy godmother. The stepmother kicked the prince. I thought that was very rude.

The illustrations are really good. Also, the illustrations are greatly done with oil or chalk pastel. Also, the story is interesting. It's like Cinderella but in a Bigfoot version. That's what I like, about how Tony Johnston and James Warhola make a great team.

I think this is a great book. Children in kindergarten through second grade will love this book. I found it was a wonderful book. I hope many families will enjoy reading this together. That is why I recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly entertaining ecological fairy tale
I checked this book out of the library for my 4-year-old, who is in love with fairy tale princesses.The story entranced us on two different levels.

My daughter loved the new twist on the Cinderella story.She fell back on her bed and laughed hysterically at the craziness of a prince looking for a girl with big feet, matted fur, and a stench."Where my stinking beauty go?" the prince bellows after Cinderrrrrella disappears.My daughter loved hearing the growly, "me Tarzan, you Jane" dialogue and was charmed and delighted that one of her favorite stories should be told in such a fresh, imaginative way.

I also was very entertained by the story, and I doubly appreciated it because of the environmental lesson contained within.The story mentions aspects of the Pacific northwest that I rarely see in books--Douglas fir, banana slugs, old-growth stands, Bigfoot, etc.--and allowed me to rekindle memories of walks through the magnificent forests of Northern California.(A glossary of 9 words/phrases appears in the front of the book for those who are not familiar with the enviromental terms used.)I highly recommend this book as a humorous, enchanting, and educational tale.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read-aloud Favorite!
As a substitute school librarian, I've taken this one with me wherever I go.It's an instant lesson in point-of-view, compare-and-contrast, and social variation.("What is important about the traditional Cinderella?" [tiny feet, grace & elegance]"What is important in the bigfoot society?" [big feet, natural state, strength, generosity])Reading it aloud, I get to use bigfoot voices.And the puns, similes, and other wordplay are inspired!Children enjoy the playful attitude and understand the deeper meanings. ...

David Paulides, a former police investigator, has applied his skills to questioning Bigfoot witnesses. The results he has achieved in gaining access to witnesses and getting detailed information from them is both remarkable and intriguing. A commissioned forensic police artist meet with witnesses and sketch the creatures as they saw them. These drawings provide insights into the creature's nature never realized before.On October 2, 1958, Jerry Crew, a road construction worker, found unusual, large human-like footprints near his bulldozer, in a road under construction, near Bluff Cree in Northern California. He had seeing same type of footprint before, but this time he made a plaster cast to preserve the evidence, and reported the findings to a local newspaper, referring to the creature that made them as Bigfoot.
The Newspaper story was picked up by the Associate Press wires and the word "Bigfoot" became the common name for the large creature in the United States of America. ... Read more

This is one of the best books on Bigfoot that I have read as of yet.I have always been fascinated with the thought that there might be an undiscovered creature such as Bigfoot.This book was a great read, especially if you like Bigfoot.I felt the author did a fine job with his investigating and detective work.It amazes me on how human like the features of the beasts face was in the drawings.I look forward to his next book.ThanksThe Hoopa Project: Bigfoot Encounters in California

5-0 out of 5 stars Good bigfoot book
Excellent no BS book on the subject reserched and written by an ex-cop.Especially interesting because of Native Americans' age old familiarity with this creature.Including pictures and backgound of interviewees makes the accounts much more authentic.Both this book and Tribal Bigfoot are well worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great sketches of a mythical being, not so great investigating
I'm a huge fan of all things Bigfoot.Movies, books, cast replicas of famous tracks, etc.I've always been frustrated by the lack of good sketches that accompany most reports.Either the witness can't draw for squat, or a subsequent investigator tries to replicate it without directly discussing it with the witness, or (most frequently) there's simply no sketch at all.That's why this book ROCKS!

Sketches abound!Some look like homeless guys with bald heads and beards, a few look like Harry from 'Harry and the Hendersons,' most look like surly bikers wearing furry vests.All are fascinating to look at.Do I believe these witnesses saw what is portrayed in the sketches? Not really.Do I think it's cool that someone's finally drawing Bigfeet in an honest attempt to capture what people IMAGINE them to look like? Hell yeah!Just like everyone has their own take on what Jason Voorhees or Godzilla looks like, this book shows that everyone has their own impression of Bigfoot.For the sketches alone, the book is more than worth the price.

*******BE WARNED!In at least one example, a SINGLE sketch is attributed to 3 DIFFERENT witnesses on 3 different pages.While this is no doubt due to a publishing error, an editor should really have caught this and the numerous typos that pepper the text.*******

For Bigfoot enthusiasts, this book will definitely force them to reconsider the now 50 year old theory that giant, Asian, Pleistocene apes are the root of the legend.After all, if eyewitness reports are credible (as enthusiasts believe), then Bigfoot's essentially a tall, hairy Homo sapiens complete with prominent nose and lack of heavy brow ridges.Of course, if all these eyewitnesses, living in such a small geographic area are credible..WHY NO PHOTOS?The obvious answer is that you can't photograph a legend.

As for the "investigation" part...well, the author's self-proclaimed expertise as a police investigator are surprisingly slip-shod.For example, he first states that the Patterson film was shot on 35 mm film (it was in fact 16 mm), then later in the same paragraph states that it was on tape (it was on movie film, not tape).In another example, he somehow associates a small fire started on the banks of a stream with Bigfoot (!) even though he admits there's no footprints or any other indication of the creature's presence.The author blindly accepts various peoples' tales of vandalism and half-remembered "sightings" as if they were gospel.Most surprisingly, he seems completely unaware that the first "full body" sketch of a male Bigfoot is essentially identical to a sketch made by Roger Patterson in 1966, to the point where it looks almost like an exact mirror image.Clearly the "eyewitness" who described the alleged Bigfoot was remembering seeing Patterson's sketch.To the credit of the forensic artist, he seems to have captured the description perfectly.To the discredit of the "investigator" and author, he never even bothered to check out the back-stories of the "witnesses" or compare their "sightings" to well-documented images that are widely available.Is this really how police investigators work?If so, it's incredibly scary.Scarier by far than the prospect of 8 ft tall nudist bikers lurking in the woods and pulling down clotheslines or throwing pumkins at car windshields.I got the distinct impression that the author wasn't really after the truth, but wanted to pass off a series of tall tales as somehow being valid (the business about signing affidavits was amusing since John Green did the same thing in the '60s).It's all very much like a 'mockumentary.'

For a fan of Ghost Stories, monsters, and legends in the making, this book is a welcome change from the tired rehash of other Bigfoot books that endlessly talk about footprints, fossils, and theories.It's a fun collection of campfire stories and cool sketches that are a great way to spend a few hours here and there.For a sociologist or someone interested in cultural beliefs and myths, this book is probably a wealth of information/

3-0 out of 5 stars Hoopa Project: Good news, bad news
This book presents quite a paradox. The author has done yeoman's work in finding and interviewing approximately three dozen individuals who report bigfoot encounters in a small area of Northwestern California over the last 50 years.Lots of interesting stories (paraphrased rather than word-for-word from witnesses) and an unusually large amount of physical detail of creatures said to have been seen. Any bigfoot enthusiast will find much to like about this book (but shouldn't hesitate to skip or briefly skim the first 60 pages or so.)

However, a bigfoot skeptic looking to discredit this work will find a great deal of ammunition. It is very amateurishly written -- apparently self-edited -- and despite containing quite a lot of irrelevant information, very obvious questions to be posed to witnesses were often not asked, or the answers didn't fit the author's objective. Many witness reports contain internal contradictions, and there are numerous simple mathematical errors.

Despite the frustration these deficiencies caused, I found the book quite worthwhile, but bigfoot has been a fascination of mine for several decades. Anyone less interested can probably get all they want from this book by looking at sketches and skimming a few of the encounter reports. ... Read more

Product Description
Like many reclusive celebrities, Big Foot is misunderstood. In his touching memoir Me Write Book he wants to set the record straight, proving that although he's larger, hairier, and more foul-smelling than most of us, he's really not so different underneath.

Only the most cold-hearted among us could look on without compassion as this hirsute Everyman struggles bravely with parental abandonement, Pringles potato crisps, embarrassing moments with peach schnapps, the desperate loneliness of personal ads, and 'roid rage.

Readers will never forget the plaintive voice from the wilderness that howls from every page of this searing, intimate account of a man-beast in the promised land. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Playing scrabble drunk and channeling Frank Zappa

Writing a review like Big Foot (from Roumieu's book) is similar to playing scrabble drunk and simultaneously channeling the spirit of Frank Zappa, circa "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" (apostrophe, 1974 ). I hope to never to do this again, it was that painful. Great book though.

Me Write book write by Graham Roumieu. Very funny! Not children book, not classic literature. Somewhere in between is book, made for adult and is violent bloody.

Book was write from the perspective of Big Foot. Big Foot not stupid, he just bad with language. Actually very smart fellow, use ten dollar words with ease.. very good grasp on theory, very bad in practice.

Big Foot, man, myth, legend, he famous once. Use lots of cocaine and drink alcohol with friends like Emilio Estevez. When cash runs out, richy-rich friends go away. Now Big Foot write book to make people know he still around. He concerned that people are forget him from the big 70s and 80s notoriety he claimed. He want set record straight with stories and Big Footsneeds.

Book filled with much artwork by BF as he artist. include sketches and water colors.

Watch out for page where he invite neighbor over for a back-rub. He not know own strength.

Book also teach you watch out for meeting your hero. He may think you competition and bash fist size rock on you repeatedly... No one like competition.

Book very good. Introduction by Mr. Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot childhood friend.


5-0 out of 5 stars Just...just wonderful
I stumbled upon this book on a mini vacation with my friends in a pretty unassuming comic book shop. It was so funny, unspeakably so sometimes, but you just can't help but laugh at some of the things Graham Romieu published under the guise of Big Foot. It's definitely one of the most quote worthy books I've ever read, too. This is the golden ticket if you're looking for something funny to read. I can say the same thing if you're looking for a good status that nobody else will completely understand, but still find funny. I'm not saying you'll look funny because of the book, but it probably wouldn't hurt.
Get if look for funny.

4-0 out of 5 stars It Good Book If You Very Twisted
After me read this book, me start talking like Bigfoot all the time.Family lose patience and lock me in cellar.

This book very silly and have lots of sharp, dry wit.Lots of pictures too, pictures very awesome!Some parts a little over top (is why four stars instead of five,) but that OK, it written by Bigfoot after all.

This book NOT for kids or sensitive types.But it great for people with twisted sense of humor.If your friend like Edward Gorey or Bunny Suicides, then give this book.If your friend like Jane Austin, then probably not best choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars Silly, One Long Joke and Not Funny
This got great reviews and I was sure it was going to be funny.I thought the introduction by the Loch Ness Monster was very clever idea, and quite amusing and that this was a sign of good things to come, but no such luck.How is this funny?It's the same "joke" on every page, just in a different scenario.I guess I don't get it.

Product Description
With pictures and stories the Bords present cases of encounters with Bigfoot. The Bigfoot story has moved from certainty of the creaturesexistence to claims of hoaxes, trickery, and outright lies and back again. Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claim to have taken movies of Bigfoot; Ray Wallace s family shows wooden feet that they claim were used to start the whole Bigfoot story in 1958. Who do we believe?

The Bords answer isnobody and everybody.The cases are presented without prejudice so you can make up your own mind. Sometimes it s easy, as with the Ray Wallace claims there are plenty of sightings before Ray Wallace was alive to make it clear he didn tstart the whole thing.Other cases are a mystery. And that s all part of the fun. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Too much UFO comments
Decently written but it has too many speculative comments about Bigfoot and UFOs. As if a foul-smelling naked ape that sleeps on the ground and eats raw flesh from deer and squirrels is going to get into an other-worldly high-tech UFO aircraft and fly to another planet or better yet - another dimension.

It would be much better if they just reported the sightings and left their wacky metaphysical ideas out of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot in All His Glory!
As a kid, I loved the original.Now, thanks to Loren Coleman's efforts to republish it, I have my own copy.Here is Bigfoot in his prime.Before the goofy anthropologist-believers tried to turn him into a giant Pleistocene ape from Asia.Before groups of "Bigfoot researchers" dressed up in cammo and played the Great White Hunter in our national forests and state parks.Before people were so damned cynical.

This book entertains the hypotheses that Bigfoot may be a ghost, or a primate, or an alien who hangs out with u.f.o's or even an interdimensional being.The evidence for any and all of the above is equally compelling.Most of all, this book is the best summary of the Bigfoot Myth as a living entity I've seen.Bigfoot truly does exist in the mind.He's whatever you want him to be.reading this book is great entertainment on a lazy summer day, sitting under a tree and sipping lemonade.Just make sure you hurry home before dark...you don't want alien ghost Bigfoot materializing before your very eyes and grabbing at you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Bigfoot read
The volume of reports in this book alone is surely enough to convince all but the most staunch skeptics of the possibility that something is out there.

4-0 out of 5 stars for my cousin
I have 2 male cousins, 11 and 14. Both have been fascinated at the prospect of an unknown primate, and can now point out so many things that have existed literally right under our noses for so long, but have never been found or documented until recently.Both give this book a hearty 2 thumbs up.They also recomend "Mysterious Monsters" DVD narrated by Peter Graves( a rarity, but worth it )

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
If you are interested in Bigfoot/Sasquatch; I highly recommend this book.David Paulides has brought some new food for thought to the table.

3-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot's a MAN, baby! A man with bad gas. Who likes UFO's.
Like all things, Bigfoot is cyclical.Natives told of giant, hairy, lost tribes with mystical powers in the 1800s, then whites described lost cavemen and apemen in the early 1900s.By the 1960s, Bigfoot became either an ape (according to John Green and Grover Krantz) or a human of some kind (per Peter Byrne and Roger Patterson).In the `70s, he became interdimensional and alien (thanks to Stan Gordon, Peter Guttilla, and Barbara Slate), but through the `90s until now, he's been a big, Pleistocene ape.Enter "Tribal Bigfoot."Not only does David Paulides return Bigfoot to his human roots, but he even discusses hypnosis, UFOs, underground equipment, and orbs of light.Groovy!It's like 1973 all over again!

Paulides ran into the same problem all Bigfoot "researchers" eventually encounter.Namely, there's so much variation in the descriptions (some have brow ridges, others don't, some have big noses, others small, 5 toes or 4?, beard or none?) and so little physical evidence, that either you throw out all the anecdotal and track evidence, or you embrace it...all of it.Green, Krantz, and other investigators selectively culled information to only report that which matched their preconception of what a Bigfoot was.That made for a nice, streamlined, consistent set of descriptions.But it was a heavily biased interpretation.Paulides reports EVERYTHING and then tries to incorporate it all into a summary interpretation.This is problematic since there is so much variation in the physical description of Bigfoot, that he is forced to invoke not just 2 species, but the specter of cross-breeding.Yes, Bigfoot steals and rapes our women!And he maybe hypnotizes people and animals.And just might turn invisible when it suits him.But he's still just a plain old, aboriginal human and not a creature.Confusing?You bet!Paulides explains how DNA samples alleged to be from Bigfoot, but apparently actually from humans, in fact validate his hypothesis that Bigfoot is just a big, hairy human.But then he goes on to talk about its very inhuman physical, mental, and chemical abilities (he seriously suggests that Bigfoot passes gas in order to hypnotize deer, dogs, and people).Of course, my Uncle Bill used to fart up a storm and cause some of us kids to wretch uncontrollably, so maybe Bigfoot's honed that skill to a more sinister level.What magnificence!

Paulides hints not so subtly that there's another book forth-coming.I personally hope he expands on Bigfoot's ninja-like skills with butt bombs, but overall I think he's mining material that already saw a hipper, groovier light of day back in the `70s.This book is HUGE and there's lots of cool stories, nice sketches, and so-so photos.On a side note...are ALL Bigfoot witnesses morbidly obese yokels and/or in need of a shave and a shower?The information is adequate, but Paulides refers to Roger Patterson's 16 mm movie film as a "tape," revealing that for a man who boasts of his thoroughness and law-enforcement background, basic fact checks somehow don't factor in to his writing.For a hardcore Bigfoot fan ONLY, the book is worth the hefty 30 bucks.If you're only casually interested, I'd suggest Barbara Anne Slate's superior book from the `70s.It reaches the same nebulous conclusions and is a much more concise read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Book review; Tribal Bigfoot
For those who've read "The Hoopa Project," this is a terrific follow-on book, looking even deeper into the Bigfoot phenomenon in Northern California.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tribal Knowledge
The second great book for David Paulides, this expanding on his previous work with the American Indians in the Pacific Northwest who have had a long association, and possibly shared genetics, with Bigfoot.A must for any Bigfoot enthusiast/researcher.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than The Hoopa Project!!!
We have all heard how a movie sequel is usually better than the original. The Empire Strikes Back, Godfather II, Transformers II. Well, in books, sometimes a sequel comes along that blows its predecessor away; that has happened with the new book Tribal Bigfoot. Those who read David's excellent original book last year (the Bigfoot Book of the Year 2008) know that there was a good deal of reports from the Hoopa reservation in Northwest California. For Tribal, David revisits the NW part of the Golden State, by going to Del Norte, Siskiyou, Humboldt and Trinity Counties to investigate more reports that have been investigated by him and his team. He also revisits Hoopa by asking the witnesses who did not have sketches done for Project to have the sketches made by Harvey Pratt the famed forensic artist, which they are. But Paulides goes beyond NW California in this book; he also travels to the Sooner State of Oklahoma to interview eyewitnesses, as well as to The Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota. Not only are there witnesses interviewed and sketches drawn of eyewitness accounts, but Paulides also comes to some startling conclusions as to the true nature of the Sasquatch, via DNA tests and just talking to the eyewitnesses and hearing their descriptions. The DNA tests yield some very surprising results, and Dave follows the evidence as he sees it to its conclusions-that Bigfoot is truly more human than ape, and that they have a language, according to reports he has investigated of witnesses hearing what sounds like Native American language coming from the woods, and also hearing from Native American elders that if a Native American speaks to a Sasquatch in their native tongue, the Sasquatch will understand it. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and give it not 5, not 6, not even 9, but 10 stars!!!!!! Well-done, Dave and Harvey!!!!!! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Formulaic monster movie in comic format.
Borrowing heavily from Firday the 13th part 6, Jurassic Park, Jaws, and Q, this comic is more of an homage to horror movies of the '80s than an original Bigfoot story.Bigfoot itself is modeled heavily on a large chimp with a droopy lip and is depicted as a human-hungry monster.No reason is given for not having previously simply hunted him down and shot him.He bursts through cabin walls, toples vans off roads, eats deputies, assaults ATV riders, and demolishes campers.All the while, the mayor of Amity, er...the sherriff of Crystal Lake, no wait...I mean the Sherriff of Scary Black Forest (or whatever it's called) covers it all up for no apparent reason.

The artwork is ok.Not great, but not terrible.Sort of like something a college kid with a couple of semesters of intro drawing would labor over.In some panels, I had to really look hard to figure out just what exactly I was supposed to be looking at.Some might argue that's part of the charm.I argue it's simply not very good art. Dialog is clunky at best (I know, I know, it's a comic book) and spelleing errors pop up here and there (again, I know...it's not great literature).

As a hardcore Bigfoot fan, I'm glad to have this, but if you're only casually interested in such things, you could live quite happily without it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Zombie is a genius
Well,look who's the authors of this masterpiece and it won't be nothing more to be said!

5-0 out of 5 stars great graphic novel
if you're into a horror filled blodtastic ride than this is the perfect graphic novel for you. it is fun and suspenseful. pick it up and you won't be able to put it down till the end.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally.... Bigfoot OWNS!!!
Wow. The people who bought this book looking for a factual, well-researched account of the legend of Bigfoot really need to read item descriptions a bit more:"...A monstrous ape-man is stomping around the woods of the Pacific Northwest, and he's not happy with mankind."

It's a HORROR COMIC, people; a HORROR COMIC by ROB ZOMBIE.That being said, I have to say that I enjoyed the book immensely! It's campy and shlocky and full of gore and mayhem... just like a Rob Zombie movie!If you don't like his movies, there's a good chance you won't dig this comic book.

This is NOT a book for the kiddies. Lemme tells ya that right away. It is a VERY graphic graphic novel.

It's a very campy, 70's style horror movie take on the Bigfoot legend with a real simple story: summer of 1973 (right before my birthday, booyah!) a little boy witnesses his family being slaughtered by a crazed bigfoot. Flash forward to 2004 where a string of savage murders that mirror the original attack draws the boy, now a grown man, back to take revenge on the creature.

The artwork is, of course, outstanding. Richard Corben is one of the pillars of the graphic narrative world as it stands today. His ability to render hyper-violent action scenes and his use of stark black shadows add to an already creepy story. I'm not quite sure how much of the story is Rob Zombie's and how much is Steve Niles', but the book's pacing and dialogue feel a lot like Zombie's stuff. Think the Devil's Rejects with Bigfoot as the murderous Firefly family and you get a pretty good idea of how brutal the action is.

The ending isn't a high-budget Hollywood film ending; it's a typical horror comic ending.It's there to shock you until the end and then leave you wanting more.And that's just what it did for me!MORE BIGFOOT! NOW!

I highly recommend it if you like Zombie's movies, Richard Corben's art, or just guilty pleasure/campy horror tales in general.

4-0 out of 5 stars On the trail of Bigfoot
"The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot" is #19 in the "Zack Files" series of short novels for young readers. The fun story by Dan Greenburg is complemented by the cleverly humorous illustrations of Jack E. Davis. In this installment, New York City schoolboy Zack goes to stay at Camp Weno-wanna-getta-wedgee for some summer fun. But he soon finds that the camp is haunted by talk about Bigfoot, the legendary, hulking hairy humanoid. Is Bigfoot real? Will Zack encounter him?

This book is an enjoyable blend of paranormal thrills, humor, and preteen social politics. There is one aspect of the book which, however, didn't work for me. One character describes the camp's ridiculous trivialization of Native American motifs as "politically incorrect." I got the sense that author Greenburg was trying to have it both ways: on one hand, mock the PC watchdogs, and on the other hand, be PC himself by mocking those those who exploit ethnic motifs in a trivial way. The result left me a bit uneasy. But if you can get past that, you may find "Bigfoot" to be an enjoyable romp.

When a spunky kid meets his long-lost Uncle Bernie, he's positive that his uncle isn't so much a Bernie as he is a BIGFOOT. But as he sets out to prove-it, he realizes that maybe Bernie's just different, and different can be a very great thing. With its HUGE Uncle Bernie fold-out and illustrations filled with hidden jokes and references to other mythological characters, this is sure to make a BIG hit with kids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hugely Hilarious
Uncle Bigfoot has been a huge hit in my household.The premise is fairly obvious from the title.A young boy is reintroduced to his Uncle Bernie, who he hasn't seen since he was an infant.There aren't any pictures of Uncle Bernie in the house, and when he arrives, the young boy is surprised to find that his uncle is a rather large, hairy man with enormous hands and feet. Could Uncle Bernie be the elusive Bigfoot?The young boy rules this out, though, when he sees how fun and loving his uncle is.

Certainly the theme that it's okay to be different is evergreen, but the two boys in my house could have cared less about that.The first thing my 3-year-old did was step on the cover of the book to see if his foot was as big as the foot on the cover.We also had to see if his hand was as big as the picture of Uncle Bernie's hand in the middle of the book. My 5-year-old thought the picture of the young boy as a Bigfoot was the best part.He now thinks he wants to go as Bigfoot for Halloween.So while I certainly don't condone my children stepping on books, I love how this book immediately captured their attention with it's funny illustrations and straight forward story.Not to mention, the green toenails on the cover supplied the gross factor required of all picture books by my two little monsters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Who is Uncle Bigfoot?
Great story of a kid who is searching for the truth, asking questions, and using scientific method and reasoning to come to his own conclusion. Yay for kids thinking and problem solving in picture books! One great moment is when Bernie surmises that IF such a hairy gargantuan is his UNCLE, then IS HE going to become so hairy too?? Yikes! The comic style illustrations are cinematic in their angles and zooms, and hilarious in their details. It is a wonderful depiction of a Bernie's mind, intent on solving the mystery of whether Uncle Bigfoot is indeed Bigfoot, with a backdrop of well-intentioned but roundabout parent talk. Uncle Bigfoot is wonderfully fun reading, reminding grown-ups that kids are more logical than we realize and reach some very amusing and thoughtful conclusions. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot Lives!!!
My daughter is very interested in Big Foot materiel.I bought her this book for her birthday and she loves it!!!It's next to her bed, handy for nightly installments!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Serious Sasquatchery
This is probably the first book I ever purchased on the subject. Not the first ever read though. Not a bad place to start a serious book collection of this topic. Reads like a well made movie. Sometimes quite humorous. Rene Dahinden was considered one of the true pioneers in the hunt. Makes me regret the missed opportunity in 1996 while vacationing in British Columbia, of not giving him a call after finding his number listed in the Vancouver area phone directory. We've lost one of the giants of the hunt.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the "Big 4"
During the reign of the sasquatch/bigfoot mania from the 1960s to late 70s, there were the "Big 4" names in sasquatch research - Grover Krantz, John Greene, Peter Byrne, and Rene Dahinden. This is Dahinden's book written with Don Hunter. It is obvious that Hunter wrote the book with Dahinden's input and you can see the distinctive spots where Dahinden adds his flavor to it.

This is a prime book for someone that is generally interested in the bigfoot phenomenon as Dahinden relates the classics, the less-than-classics, and a few minor other stories. Of the Big 4, Dahinden was probably the most in-the-field, his passion bordered on obsession and he notes in the book that it cost him his marriage. Dahinden was a no nonsense researcher and he didn't hide it. Also he points out that he doesn't necessarily believe that sasquatches exist so much as he was adament about finding out the source of the massive amounts of footprints left in the Pacific NW and British Columbia.

The book itself covers all the classic stories of Jacko, Beck at Ape Canyon assault, the Ostman Kidnapping, the Baumann attack, Cripplefoot tracks, and Patterson's film. Dahinden/Hunter also cover the lesser known classics of WA skier Carter's dissappearance, the Chapmans of Ruby Creek, and William Roe's close up observation of a bigfoot. He throws in a smattering of even lesser known sightings also. Dahinden also gives coverage of hoaxers Ivan Marx and Paul Freeman that always seemed to run into a sasquatch no matter where they went. He also talks about the multiple failed 'expedition hunts' and his partnership and falling out with John Greene.

Overall, this is a great book for the mildly interested bigfoot fan as it covers all the stories. For the avid follower, this book is a must even though it is dated to 1980s. You'll get the classics and more from one of the vital members of early sasquatch investigation.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book about bigfoot and the bigfoot hunter.
This is a very good book about Rene Dahinden who has since past away. Rene was the ultimate bigfoot hunter but one who should be respected because even though Rene spent most of his adult life in search of the creature he never found it. In fact Rene never claimed that bigfoot was real or that it existed at all. He was just interested in learning what he could.

Rene came to Canada from Switzerland in the 50's. He was one of the organizers behind the Harrison Hot Springs B.C. Centennial celebrations in which he started a monster hunter competition for the elusive creature.

It is a remarkable story about someone who turned up lots of new things sasquatch related but never once saw a bigfoot himself. His story revolves around his work with John Green and his failling out with the same man. Rene is one of the first sasquatch hunters to investigate the Bluff Creek footprints and was responsible for the release of the famous Patterson bigfoot film. He also worked closely with Russian bigfoot researchers and brought many of their findings to the west. This was an extremely important development in bigfoot research.

This is a very good book about Rene and his hunt for the sasquatch with lots of chapters that relate to the above. It is pretty much told in a way that doesn't try to push the idea that Sasquatch is real! and you will learn a lot about the history of sasquatch and how it all began right here within these pages.

This volume was originally published in the early 1970's and has been updated in the 1990's.Mr. Dahinden has been a long time searcher for the Sasquatch.The sighting reports are detailed and have been investigated byMr Dahinden.Unfortunately, a large portion of this book is spent tellingthe life story of Mr Dahinden and his difficulties with other SasquatchHunters which is really irrelevant to the subject at hand.However whenthe book does not stray from the subject it is quite interesting andpresents strong evidence for the existence of this animal.This book is amust for all readers interested in this subject. Of a note of interest, MrDahinden is the one who owns the copyright on the 1967 Roger Pattersonfilm.Since he knew all of the people involved in the film, it would begreat if he would one day write a book on the history of the film and theevents leading up to the filming and afterwards. ...

Product Description
Part history, part road trip, and part biography, this is the true story of a remarkable group of men whose obsession with Bigfoot turned the giant hominid into an American icon. Award-winning journalist Michael McLeod tells of Bigfoot's rise to tabloid stardom in a fast-paced account that begins with his own journey to investigate a famous 1967 film clip of a Bigfoot in a California forest. McLeod proceeds to uncover a trail of clues reaching from the late nineteenth century, when a few ambitious, imaginative naturalists and explorers synthesized historical and indigenous folklore with Darwinian ideas and speculated that a proto-hominid "missing link" might still be alive in remote areas. That speculation would eventually inspire a colorful cast of loggers, hunters, con artists, and businessmen in the twentieth century to create the modern myth of Bigfoot, all of them angling for a piece of a monster that the media and the public still can't get enough of. Told through vividly narrated interviews and anecdotes, Anatomy of a Beast offers a unique perspective on the deep roots of counterfactual thinking--and how obsession and myth are created out of it. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Skeptic keep an open mind.
I do not have a problem with any one being a skeptic on the subject of Bigfoot.
What bothers me the most is that people who say they saw this creature or found tracks in the back country are treated as crackpots or they did not see what they thought they saw. I think the author has a right to his thoughts on the subject but until this subject is proven to be real or not then he and others should report with an open mind.There are many areas of this country and the world that very few if any one has been. Who can say for sure that the Bigfoot does not live. I make my comments knowing that there have been hoaxers but I don't accept for one moment that all clues, (ie) tracks,hair,scat etc. is fake.Something made them!

2-0 out of 5 stars An Easy Read
McCleod's book isn't bad... I give it two stars just for the entertainment factor, and for the fact that he actually talked to a lot of people.

I consider myself a skeptic who is OPEN to the possibility of an undiscovered species of ape in North America.

McCleod has so thoroughly made up his mind that the sasquatch CANNOT and DOES NOT exist, that it taints the whole book with a sheen of smug self-satisfaction... the author is surely smarter than these ridiculous bigfooters... how could they even entertain such an absurd idea?

And in all of his smugness, he glosses over many important things... the most important (in my opinion) being the fact that NO ONE HAS EVER SUCCESSFULLY DEBUNKED THE PATTERSON-GIMLIN FOOTAGE.McCleod goes along with the Bob H. in the suit idea, even though it is fraught with problems... he says "after all, SOMEONE had to be in the suit.." and leaves it at that.

Really?The PGF is a strange piece of footage... and I'm not a 100% believer that it shows a real animal... but watch it several times, over and over again, and you will see just how amazing it really is.If it is a hoax, it is absolutely ingenious.

McCleod dismisses it based on the testimony of guy who said he was working near Bluff Creek in October 1967, and HE never saw them there... CASE CLOSED! Patterson wasn't even there!

If this is your idea of well-researched journalism, you too will be able to dismiss the Patterson-Gimlin film, perhaps THE BEST evidence that there is, or was, something remarkable in the woods of the Pacific Northwest.

Obviously, McCleod is smarter than the many scientists and professional animators/creature designers who have been stumped and perplexed by the PGF... even today, over forty years later, NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO REPRODUCE a similar piece of footage to prove that it was a hoax.

Just remember: some guy who was working in the woods back then never saw Patterson or Gimlin.... so it must be fake.You have to take that random guy's word for it.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Anatomy of a Filmmaker
McLeod the filmmaker (PBS documentaries) questions the mental condition of Bigfoot researchers & believers ("... if people can delude themselves into believing (in Bigfoot) ..., what on earth might they be thinking about truly important matters?"). Yet, while he excoriates the use of pseudo-science by some who promoted the subject of Bigfoot in the past, we wonder if he isn't using pseudo-psychology in supporting his premise, which is that the species people call Bigfoot does not exist. The author calls recent decades of sightings, track findings, etc., a "virus", therefore it is interesting to read how he believes the "virus" or the "myth" has been perpetuated. He gives his interpretation of the historical & biographical background of modern Bigfoot/Sasquatch studies & personalities as he attempts to debunk some famous Sasquatch accounts and encounters. Methinks the filmmaker is obsessed with the non-existence of the creature.

5-0 out of 5 stars book review
This is an interesting commentary on those folks who make a living (or at least a life) chasing down what may be a non-existant animal. What obsesses people to give up everything in the chase of a myth? This book attempts to answer that question in regards to those who chase Bigfoot.

4-0 out of 5 stars a PBS documentarian looks at bigfoot
Each year there are inevitably several books released on the subject of bigfoot. This year we start out with Buhs' Bigfoot: The Life and Times of a Legend and this book by McLeod. Both follow similar outlines, rehashing some old stories and then dismissing them because the individual authors deny the existence of such creatures. I really don't care whether they "believe" (I hate the use of that word in this regards) but I do care whether they present an interesting look into the legend, pro or con, and supply me with information that entertains me or causes me to think more. I personally accept the admittedly soft-evidence on the existance of the creatures but will gladly read an opposing viewpoint with an open mind. Both Buhs and McLeod present their takes and overall, I found both books intriguing whether I agreed or not.

McLeod's book is rather back and forth over the subject matter. He denies the existance but then writes an extremely provocative and entrancing descriptive which seemingly accepts them only to turn around and comment that it just isn't true. I grew tired of this in both books. I accept your dispute but don't have to be reminded constantly. Anyway, I actually truly enjoyed this book as McLeod has a powerful way with words, sometimes using overpriced words to seemingly show off his expanse of language. There is no real argument disproving the creatures other than the author just doesn't accept what has been presented, it's his opinion and I respect it. There are some apparent character attacks on the old time "investigators", specifically Roger Patterson and his film. However, his look into the past is much less warped than Greg Long's which is really just an all out attack on Patterson and the film. Again, no evidence is presented showing there was or was not 'a man in a monkey suit' other than the author simply stating it was fake.

Overall, a very easy going and descriptive look into the legends, stories, and history of bigfoot. My final statement: in my opinion, the author seemingly wants to 'believe' in bigfoot creatures as he has had an interest in the phenomenon for decades but the 'intellectual' side of him refuses to allow him accept the creatures. Either way, it's a great book for both sides of the fence and should be in your bigfoot literature collection. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bigfoot, Yesterday and Today
Call this a labor of love. While browsing about Amazon I was surprised to see that John Napier's book Bigfoot has no reviews. This is little short of sacrilege. Admittedly this is an old book, it was first published in 1972, but it isnone the worst for that. At the time this book was written Dr. Napier was director of primatology at the Smithsonian Institute and he combined a scientist's mind, a believers awe and a little wit to produce a highly intelligent book that manages to be thought provoking and entertaining at the same time.

It is not a long book but he still manages to cover almost the whole range of the Bigfoot phenomenon. Beginning with a discussion of the role of the monster myth in today's world he progresses to some of the most classic stories that were then known. After discussing the Bigfoot phenomenon in Asia (the yeti) and in North America ( Sasquatch) he then subjects the evidence to a scathing scientific scrutiny. As a primatologist Dr. Napier brings an understanding of primate behavior and physiology that is the envy of many other authors. Since footprints are the principle evidence for the existence of Bigfoot these are treated first and by the time he is done you may have learned more than you want to know about foot prints. This is followed by similar treatments of natural history and the fossil evidence along with an analysis of the Patterson tape. His treatment of the Minnesota Iceman alone is worth the price of the book.

If you are looking for a thoughtful sifting of the evidence by someone with no ax to grind this is a book that is still worth reading. There is a lot of sloppy thinking present in many of these tales and he was not shy about exposing it in a manner that some people may find uncongenial, yet doubt remains. In the end he admits that it is not possible to prove absolutely that Bigfoot does not exist. What it does show is that it is possible to subject the evidence to a thoughtful analysis that allows anyone to separate the wheat from the chaff.
